Happy Friday lovelies!

In case you haven't heard, our very own Kelsey Sutton had her first official book release this week!


I had the pleasure of reading an early version of this manuscript way back when Kelsey and I first met, and it blew me away even then. It has such a uniquely awesome premise, which she handles beautifully, and I'm SO glad the rest of the world finally gets to experience this book too! And if you're one of the many people dying to have the chance to read, then you're in luck! We're giving away a shiny new copy of it below. The giveaway will run through the weekend and into Monday, and the winner will be announced Tuesday!

And just in case you haven't seen it yet, here are the details about this GORGEOUS thing:

Elizabeth Caldwell doesn’t feel emotions . . . she sees them in human form. Longing hovers around the shy, adoring boy at school. Courage materializes beside her dying friend. Fury and Resentment visit her abusive home. They’ve all given up on Elizabeth because she doesn’t succumb to their touch. All, that is, except beautiful Fear, who sometimes torments her and other times plays her compassionate savior. He’s obsessed with finding the answer to one question: What happened to Elizabeth to make her this way?

They both sense that the key to Elizabeth’s condition is somehow connected to the paintings of her dreams, which show visions of death and grief that raise more questions than answers. But as a shadowy menace begins to stalk her, Elizabeth’s very survival depends on discovering the truth about herself. When it matters most, she may not be able to rely on Fear to save her.
